Special Issue on Cooperatives and Alternative Food Systems Initiatives

special issue of the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (JAFSCD) on Cooperatives and Alternative Food Systems Initiatives is now out.

The issue explores cooperative alternative food networks, contributing to the understanding of the function, the challenges and the potential of cooperativism and collective action in enabling more just and resilient food systems. Cooperative alternative food networks are described as emerging powerful tools for community development and important vehicles for cultivating democratically controlled food systems at multiple scales.
